The Mission Committee organizes an annual Alternatives Gifts Fair and Book Sale on the third Saturday of November. The Book Sale offers thousands of great books at incredible prices, with all proceeds supporting financial assistance of seminary students in our partner synod in Ethiopia. The Bethlehem Bazaar offers handicrafts and food items that benefit needy artisans and producers, or local and international missions. There is also a delicious menu of lunch items available for purchase from the Presbyterian Women of Olivet. The Bethlehem Bazaar and Book Sale is a great opportunity to visit with church members and neighbors. But most importantly it is an opportunity to do some early Christmas shopping, and support some very worthy causes and ministries. Why not give gifts to your loved ones that “give twice”: to the recipient, as well as to a local or international ministry, or lower-income artisan?
